Every Mancunian knows that their city is the centre of the universe. Paris, London, Milan, New York, nah. Manchester beats them hands down. When it comes to fashion, it doesn't follow the pack. Individual and self-assured, it's a city that does things its own way. On every street, in every bar, you'll find a dozen different looks but each one is worn with true confidence. Now that's style.
These limited edition t-shirts are sure to be fashion gold dust. They’re only around for two days and then they’re gone
Whoever you are, whatever your style, spend £60* at Manchester Arndale on fashion, beauty, footwear and accessories on Saturday 28 or Sunday 29 March and design and print your own on-trend t-shirt in minutes to take home, free of charge
Trends Illustrated, Manchester Arndale’s unique SS15 fashion event, is bringing Manchester’s eclectic city centre style to Exchange Court, representing the idiosyncratic cool of the people that make this city so goddam smart.
Wear your own style with pride, quite literally, by picking your t-shirt style, customising the design yourself to reflect your fashion personality and printing it with your own cheeky tagline and a quirky graphic of the style avatar that suits you best.
One thing’s for certain, these limited edition t-shirts designed by fashion illustrator Dom & Ink are sure to be fashion gold dust. They’re only around for two days and then they’re gone. If you miss out, it’s tough luck – you’ve just made this season’s biggest fashion faux-pas and no mistake.
Choose your look. Customise your t-shirt. Simple.
What’s your style?
If you’re a Pastel Princess, then you may look all sugar and spice with your bouclé co-ord outfits and girly heels, but you’re also full of sass. Usually found working within a big city corporate, you’re far from ditzy…and will always look immaculately polished!
